About Becky & Hallie Huggins

My daughter and I decided to buy a Condo to have a getaway on the beach. The moment we laid eyes on this Condo we fell in-love. With our whole family being in the military (myself and husband both retired military and both sons and daughter currently serving our nation in the US Army) we decided to get a beautiful place convenient enough that we all could manage to come together throughout the year to see each other that is convenient for all and also allows my husband and I to get away from the Alaskan cold throughout points in the winter.

Becky & Hallie Huggins purchased this condo in 2014

Why Becky & Hallie Huggins chose Gulf Shores

This property has it all - One of the newest complex's in Gulf Shores and it clearly shows the updates and amenities offered. Wouldn't have chosen anything else.

We had a great visit! It had stormed at beginning of the week but plenty to do around the area .

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this condo very much. The Condo had everything we needed. Communication with condo owners was great !! They were prompt and checked in to make sure everything was ok. The facilities were kept clean. The pool and game room was clean and fun. The beach was busier than we are us too but great sand great to walk , friendly families and we felt very safe. We loved having parking in the garage. Always nice to get into a cooler car. I recommend this place highly!!

When we arrived and looked over the deck the stress melted away.

  • 4 of 5

This was our first experience using the website and happily upon our arrival we found a very nice condo with a perfect location. It was close to stores and shops downtown and far enough to be outside of the hustle and bustle. Being a car person, I LOVED the covered parking. Nothing like having your car out of the weather and hot sun. The condo was right on the beach and looking out the living room window was like looking out a cruise ship balcony window. I wanted to give a 4.5 star instead of 4. My only complaint (my wife's really) was the cleaning could have been a little better. It was broom clean as they say and could use a deep cleaning but you had to look closely to notice it. The 2 bathrooms helped quickly getting ready and for rainy days there are great flat screens in the living room and bedroom.

There is also a game room on property with a couple of pool tables which we used a few times along with a small gym which I didnt use.

I thought the couches in the living room could use cleaning but once again my wife pointed that out to me.

Overall I was pleased with my rental. One thing we discovered was we made a trip to Pensacola to the Museum of Naval Flight and found the Blue Angels do 2 practices a day in the off-season and they allow the public to view it and the museum free of charge. Its a 45 min. drive and worth the trip.

Priceless view

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week! The condo was very conveniently located for everything we wanted to do. And the view was amazing. I only mention this for your information but whoever "cleans" the condo does a lousy job. It was filthy. There were multiple lightbulbs burnt out, food crumbs in the sleeper sofa, ceiling fan has thick layer of dust grime, dirty dishes in the cabinets (legit used dishes, not just a poor dishwasher run), etc.

We are not neat freaks so it didn't affect our stay too much but if you're paying someone to clean, you might want to find someone else.

Owner's Response: We are glad you had a nice stay and apologies for the cleaning- we have rarely had issues with our cleaning team and will review with them about the dishes and dust above the fan. Light bulbs have been changed as we typically change them every 6 months.

Best Condo we have ever stayed in.

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to Gulf Shores for our family vacation for 10 years now and this condo was by far the best one yet. We plan on getting this same condo next year if it is available. You have a beautiful view from the front and the back. Condo is very updated with all the comforts you will need.

Beautiful views

  • 4 of 5

We loved the condo. We really loved the size if the balcony. The only reason I did a 4 star instead of 5 was because the condo advertised beach towel and there was none. We had to go buy some since we didn't bring ours. Also, the showers were slow to drain. Other than that, beds were comfy, we had all the supplies needed for cooking. Keyless entry and amenties, was a plus. Thank you for sharing your place with us. We would diffently rent again when we visit gulf shores.
